Libra ♎ August 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


As you moved into the second half of July Mars, in the first full month of his longest visit to your relationship sector in 32 years, received some push back from the asteroid Juno and while this may have created some personal and/or relationship tension, this month you get to enjoy the benefits. Juno might only be an asteroid but the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returned to Libra in November for what should have been a two month visit but as if sensing how important her presence would become, she stayed on and is still here.

There has been continuous planetary activity in your relationship sector for the last nine decades with the dwarf planet Eris, warrior princess of the cosmos here since 1926. However, with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos here as well and not leaving until January, last month saw Juno roll up her sleeves and confront him head on. While Juno is the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, in Libra she is demanding a balance between your personal and relationship needs and that is what was put to the test last month.

This won’t be repeated but the message delivered, both sides benefit this month. You will find your personal confidence rise but also, with the Sun in your friendship sector until 23rd August and Mercury, the planet of communication from 5th August to 20th August you will feel the support for communication, friendship and relationship building. In the meantime, Venus will finally leave an adventurous part of your chart on 8th August, with her return to your career sector creating the potential for August to be a good month across the job and career fronts. Mercury only wraps up his two month visit on 5th August, giving Venus plenty of potential to capitalise on.

This is the month when Mars’ true intentions on the relationship front will become known and those intentions are that he is here to stay. Mars returned to your relationship sector on 28th June for what is normally a six week visit, with a chance to fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. That means that Mars should be leaving at some point this month but instead, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month that will keep him here until January.

With Mars in your relationship sector for the rest of the year, there is no escaping is an unwillingness to settle for the status quo or not to fight for what either you or your relationships need. This is Mars’ longest visit in 32 years and the true impact from this will be felt when his estimated time of departure mid month comes and goes. Fortunately, any challenges will only come when Mars clashes with planets in Libra and you got your first taste of this when he clashed with Juno last month. However, that is behind you and won’t be until later next month, with the Sun and Mercury in Libra that the next clash will come. This gives you time to reflect on last month’s clash and what this exposed.

Fortunately, both Mars and your relationships have plenty of support, including from the South Node in your communication sector and both the Sun, in your friendship sector until 23rd August and from Mercury, with the planet of communication there from 5th August to 20th August. The latter will not only provide support for friendship and relationship building but on the communication front, while the South Node will remain in your communication sector throughout Mars’ time in your relationship sector. The Moon’s return to your relationship sector from 8th August to 10th August will be a chance to check in, while a romantically charged Full Moon on 4th August will be the crown in the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector from 3rd August to 5th August.

MoneyLibra August 2020 Money Horoscope

While there has been no planetary activity in your income sector this year and there will be none until Mercury returns later next month, already the money gods are preparing to shift the balance of power from one side of the financial fence to the other. Since Uranus returned to your financial sector last March and until he leaves in 2026, there is now continuous planetary activity on the side of the financial fence that is more focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. Uranus is a slow outer planet and while more focused on maintaining a sense of financial direction, his retrograde turn on 16th August will move this into review mode.

This is a case of Uranus and his focus on your financial situation and money matters standing back and in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, this will finally give income matters and a focus on money coming in its turn. This will begin with Mercury’s return later next month but won’t run its course until December, with the final three months of the year destined to be the most lucrative. While this doesn’t begin until later next month, Uranus’ retrograde turn this month is the beginning of that transition. In the meantime, this is also giving the professional gods time to create the right professional conditions, which they will do in earnest this month.

While the Sun left your career sector last month and Mercury will leave on 5th August Venus, the planet of money won’t even return until 8th August and here until early next month will leave just a few weeks before Mercury’s return to your income sector. As the planet of money Venus will always return to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction but knowing there are lucrative developments ahead, will work towards that. Venus will also have Neptune and Ceres in your work sector to work with.

While the Sun left your career sector late last month and Mercury will finally wrap up an over two month visit on 5th August, this is not the end of all the planetary activity here. For the first time since 2012, you move into August with Venus yet to return and this is for the same reason as it was eight years ago, with a retrograde phase holding her back. Often all planetary activity on the career front for the year can end when the Sun leaves and the only reason it didn’t is that Mercury too turned retrograde, keeping him here.

Mercury returned at the end of May for what should have been a 14 to 15 day chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open and to update your professional game plan and resolutions. Instead, a retrograde turn at the end of June means he only turned direct last month and won’t leave until 5th August, giving you access to his intellectually savvy edge for an incredible amount of time. Mercury’s departure will temporarily end the planetary activity here but having spent over two months here by the time Venus returns three days later she will easily pick up from where he left off.

However, this ushers in a new era, for while Mercury rules through the heart rather than the head and through the laws of attraction. As the planet of money, Venus has returned to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. The Sun and Mercury have put in the hard work and Venus returns to reap the benefits. Venus will also work closely with Neptune and Ceres, who in retrograde motion in your work sector are updating your needs, dreams and priorities on the job front. The Moon will be in your work sector from 5th August to 8th August and leaving just hours before Venus returns to your career sector will make it easy to entwine the two from the get go.
